Marco Rubio- Republican - Will End DACA
Republican presidential candidate and Sen. Marco Rubio said Wednesday that he'd eventually end protections for young undocumented immigrants who came to the U.S. as children -- a move that would take away the ability to work legally from tens of thousands of so-called Dreamers.
Rubio, the Florida senator who helped draft a comprehensive immigration reform bill in 2013, has said previously that he would continue the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program until it can be replaced with immigration reform passed through Congress.
That stance has come under fire from conservatives, however, who have accused him of continuing President Barack Obama's amnesty programs.
He backed away from that position Wednesday.
“It will have to end at some point," he said at an event in New Hampshire, according to Bloomberg Politics, adding that it would be "ideal" if it ended because Congress enacted reform.
"But if it doesn’t, it will end," Rubio continued, according to Bloomberg Politics. "It cannot be the permanent policy of the United States."
The comments were similar to past ones, but with one crucial difference: Previously he had emphasized that he wanted reform passed first.
